on copenhagen, didn't really get a consensus going except yeah, we're going to have another meeting in a while. but you say enough of that poppy cock. it's time to move to plan b. what is plan b in your estimation? what should we be doing? >> plan b is what mankind has always done throughout the ages what mankind does in different parts of the globe at the present time where the temperature is very different in countries, very cold countries and what people do is they adapt. mankind is superb and at adapting and we are better now because of modern technology adapt to go whatever nature and the climate throws at us than we've ever been before. so that is what we should do. that is what we will do. that is plan b. the idea that you can get a global agreement on decor car -- decarbonization is poppy cook. even if you did, it shows you're not going to. the meeting later this year is a complete waste of time. even if you did get an agreement, the cost to the economy will be far greater than any benefit you would conceivably get. >> so you suggest -- we just keep using fossil fuel, carbon based stuf

and he's in copenhagen where he lives. good morning to you. >> good morning. how are you? >> thank you very much. let's go back to april 2009. you and your wife were traveling. she was booked on a window seat and you were on a middle seat and british airways was about to seat a minor child next to you. they thought wait a minute, the kid is not related to you. what did they say? >> it went a little different. i had been located on the window seat and my wife the middle seat but she was quite heavily pregnant and she wanted to take some rest and therefore wanted to sit at the window. >> right. tell us what the flight attendant said. >> well, the flight attendant, apparently it seems to be policy of british airways that i found out and also airlines that no male is allowed to -- is allowed to sit next to a child so he approached me and asked me to swap seats with my wife. at that point, i asked him why and he explained to me that it is company policy and i began to ask why and he said it seemed inappropriate and only then i realized what all this thing was about. also, he mentioned tha
